There's a happy ending for a dog whose abandonment was captured on CCTV in Peterborough.
An appeal was made about the lurcher-now renamed- Padme, who was found tied to a post with a piece of string back in February.
Almost 1.7 million people watched the heartbreaking footage and the RSPCA followed up a number of leads but the man was never traced.
Ella was taken in by the charity’s Block Fen Animal Centre, near March, where the withdrawn dog began to come out of her shell.
Now she has a new owner and a new life in Whittlesey with Kirk Brawn and his other RSCPA dog.
